After a 6 hour drive from El Nido to Puerto Princesa, I finally arrived at Sheebang Hostel where I stayed for 2 days. I booked my Underground River tour at my hostel where I was picked up the next morning with other travellers.
If I remember correctly, we were 10-12 in the van. We introduced each other and our local guide was very jolly. It was a 2 hour drive going to the Underground River. Since we need to wait for local guide who was getting our tickets, we opted to do fun and thrilling activities!
After we got our ticket, we are now finally heading to the destination. But we took our buffet lunch first which was included in the package we paid.
It was a fine weather when left the dock for the Underground River. Clear sky. Sunny day. 5 minutes later, we started battling a rough sea. Clouds getting darker. Looming on far end, we saw the clouds touching the mountains. It was all foggy from a far that it felt like we were entering the world of Harry Potter with all the stunning rock formations of Palawan. That’s when it hit us, we got caught up in a storm. Raindrops on our skin. Wind rushing on our face. The boat almost flipped over. And our boat man continued battling the rough sea.
We arrived at the shore. It was raining hard that I thought of dancing in the rain. In that moment, life was perfect. Not the kind of perfect where nothing is wrong but the kind of perfect where the wrongs don’t matter.
The Puerto Princesa Underground River is literally perfect! I was in total awe when we left. Amazing! Incredibe! Whooo! Finally visited one of the 7 wonders of the nature!
